If the query is returning a string, you could convert it to a date first -  
using parseNumber - and then format it in the proper locale:

<%  String sDate  = oeuvre_data; // simplified expression %>
<fmt:parseNumber var="date" parseLocale="en_US"><%=sDate%></fmt:parseNumber>
<fmt:formatNumber value="${date}"/>

If the locale is not en_US you can replace it or even use the pattern
